How do you disable browser Autocomplete on web form field / input tag?

According to the Mozilla Developer Network documentation, the Boolean form element attribute autocomplete prevents form data from being cached in older browsers.

<input type="text" name="foo" autocomplete="off" />
<form name="form1" id="form1" method="post" 
      autocomplete="off" action="http://www.example.com/form.cgi">

This will work in Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox, the downside is that it is not XHTML standard.

The solution for Chrome is to add autocomplete="new-password" to the input type password.

Example:

<form name="myForm"" method="post">
<input name="user" type="text" />
<input name="pass" type="password" autocomplete="new-password" />
<input type="submit">
</form>

Chrome always autocomplete the data if it finds a box of type password, just enough to indicate for that box autocomplete = "new-password".

This works well for me.
